I used to hate Heinekin because of the bitter skunky flavor. Then I learned it was due to the green bottles and sunlight.

I went on a cruise in the Med and they ran out of Bass but had Heinekin on tap, I thought they had poured me the wrong beer. It wasn't skunked and was really quite good. Now I make my own using the recipe from Clone Brews.
